#130 – The Law is Unlivable

A thing can be 100% unfair and 100% righteous. A system can be oppressive and opportunity giving, at the same time. When the circumstances create a clean heart and renews a right spirit, then it has immense value.

I AM your Father and I love you, not because you are perfect, but because you are flawed. I love you past the mistakes, past the flaws and past the inadequacies. I Am in love with the real you, the vulnerable you.

It is time for you to apologize, humble yourself and make things right again. Place your ego on the alter and your relationship can be restored. Right or Wrong the relationship being out of alignment is not worth it.

MY kingdom is not built on law, but love. I AM Love, not the law and the law cannot redeem you. The law is unlivable and makes all men sinners. Grace extinguishes and fulfills the law, giving sinners a life to live.

1 Corinthians 15:54-58
Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

#129 – Call on the Name of the Lord

Call on the name of the Lord. There is a unique threat currently being faced. The target of this threat is your peace. This is more than a coincidence, an enemy has done this. This is a supernatural stress and the relief is also supernatural.

Call on the name of the Lord. The adversary does not fight fair. He will influence those closest to you. Spouses, Parents, Children and other believers can be deceived into sin, like Eve was beguiled in the garden. Despite what is said or done towards you, hold your peace.

Call on the name of the Lord. Be cognizant of the enemy on multiple fronts. There is a declared enemy and then there is ‘friendly fire’. You must address each: the external enemy, the internal enemy and the enemy within your own heart.

Call on the name of the Lord. Be vigilant in your awareness. The enemy is using your past against you. He is using old wounds to create new problems, manifesting in the form of confusion, shame, embarrassment and chaos.

Psalms 50: 14-15
Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”

#128 – All Glory and Honor Belongs to ME

Any opportunity you need, I will create for you. If you create it, men will honor you, when I create it, men will honor ME. All honor and Glory belongs to ME. Men are not designed to be the source of Glory or Light, but the reflection of it.

Many men have fallen, seeking a glory that can only be accepted by ME. Remember to fulfill your role, leave being a god up to ME. You are MY designated representative, purposed to carry out MY edicts and to establish a heaven on earth.

You were first a spirit and then given a body. You were first with ME and then given to an earthly mother and father. Recognize this, the real you is spirit and then flesh. This means your strategy, warfare and thinking must be spiritual and then applied to the flesh.

Seek ME and they proceed. Your emotions will betray you when given complete control. Evaluate things from your Kingdom perspective, before allowing how you feel and what you see to dominate your actions.

1 Timothy 1:15-17
This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them all. But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life. All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen.

#127 – Like a Bow and String

A hurting heart cannot hear. What is heard sounds like more hurt. Every heart has been hurt and is deaf in some way, it is a safety mechanism. Despite how successful they look or sound they need hope, help and healing.

This type of offense resides in the heart and it requires the precision of a surgeon, the delicate balance of a lion and a lamb. A shepherd’s heart causes him to leave the ninety nine for the one and a good shepherd will look death in the eye, to protect his sheep.

I Am a good shepherd, dedicated to MY sheep. I Am the divider of joints and marrow, full of both love and deliverance. MY Grace and MY Forgiveness are intertwined functioning in unison like a bow and string.

A heart full of pain is answered by a heart full of Grace. A deafened heart is one void of love, one void of hope and one that has no joy. I Am offering you a new life and a new heart, take hold of MY love, MY hope and MY joy.

Matthew 18:12-14
“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn’t wander away! In the same way, it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.

#126 – Untaintable Blood

Shame is your nemesis. Your DNA is perfect and your flaws are the unique fingerprints of an elaborate soul. Each of your flaws has been coupled with MY Glory and this makes you invincible. Do not allow your former heart to condemn you.

No more shame and no more self sabotage, the highest point in MY Kingdom is a Son and you are MY son. This is the sacrifice made by Christ, he became a slave and gave HIS last. As a joint heir, with HIM, you share in it all.

Slavery, bondage and shame are not the same. Slavery is physical, bondage is mental and shame is spiritual. The work of Christ has liberated you from each one. You have been given a pardon and a reprieve by faith, through an untaintable blood.

MY TRUTH is the only thing that has the power to remove the shackles of slavery. It is MY overflowing grace, that cancels out the bondage and it is MY flawless, AGAPE love that extinguishes shame forever.

Romans 8:15-17
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

#125 – A Legacy of Glory

The promised land is yours, it is your birthright, but you will still have too fight for it. There will be giants in the land and giants in your heart, that must be defeated. A delayed harvest is still a harvest, you can only lose the harvest if you abandon the land.

Do not abandon the land. Do not allow the fear of your potential, to immobilize you. The fear and nervousness is designed to prompt you and keep you alert, not to paralyze. Embrace the fear and allow it to fuel you.

Learning to manage fear must be mastered. To acquire the promise land a series of small victories must be won, along the way, each victory memorialized to insure the vitality of the next generation. A legacy:

A legacy of hope, a legacy of strength, a legacy of overcomers, a legacy of power, a legacy of love, a legacy of truth, a legacy of faith, a legacy of forgiveness, a legacy of peace, a legacy of victory and a legacy of Glory. My Glory.

2 Corinthians 4:5-7
You see, we don’t go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.

#124 – Free of Guilt and Shame

No matter the depth and breath of your sin. No matter the manner or magnitude of your depravity. The gospel is for you. Grace has covered you. This is not a license to sin, but a license to live free of shame and guilt.

There is a difference between being guilty and the shame of guilt. The shame is constant and designed to convict a soul. The stench of guilt is remedied by right behaviors. Guilt leads to repentance, but shame leads to inadequacy.

Improve your character, so that your words have power. So that your reputation reflects a royal priesthood. So that men can hear you and are moved to act. So that I can present your life to the host of Heaven and to the gates of Hell, as Holy.

I have forgotten your sins, but you are returning to the past, as a dog returns to vomit. This is a harsh word, designed not to hurt your heart, but to provoke it. You are more. You are chosen. You are called. You are eternally MINE.

2 Peter 2:20-22
When people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”

#123 – These Two Worlds

The assignment does not change, though the strategy will. You have heard MY voice, find another way. What comes easily, can make you impotent. What is worked for and fought for, in the end, has a more savory taste.

I AM the same God, committed to loving you unconditionally. The disapproval of man, does not discount your calling. You are not what they have said of you. The condemnations and convictions, in the earth are not so in MY Kingdom.

I will guide you into glory and into freedom, but it will be at a hefty price. It is going to cost you everything: your ego, your will and your life. Choose the assignment over self importance, status and social standing these all must be laid on the alter.

To become MY everything, will require, becoming nothing in the eyes of men. What signifies value in the flesh is not recognized in Heaven and what is invaluable in MY realm is scorned by most men. You will need ME to reconcile these two worlds.

Titus 2:11-14
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

#122 – I AM Life, I AM Light, I AM Breath

I AM the Light. At times, I illuminate the past from your present state and other times, I use what you have seen, felt and heard to be a lamp for what is to come. I hold them all: your yesterdays, todays and tomorrows, because I stand in eternity.

I AM the Lamb. I have taken your blames and have assumed all costs associated with your sins. The wages of sin was death, paid in full by the sacrifices of Christ. Worthy is the lamb that was slain, making redemption to Myself possible.

I AM the Passover. Death cannot enter your dwelling, your heart or your mind. You are eternally spared for three reasons, because you have been chosen, because you made the right sacrifice and because you were obedient.

I AM the Word. In the beginning was ME. Standing next to Myself, I made all things and confirmed them with Myself. All that I decided to make was done through and with Myself. I AM Life, I AM Light, I AM Breath and darkness will never comprehend, who I AM.

John 8:54-58
Jesus answered, “If I want glory for myself, it doesn’t count. But it is my Father who will glorify me. You say, ‘He is our God,’ but you don’t even know him. I know him. If I said otherwise, I would be as great a liar as you! But I do know him and obey him. Your father Abraham rejoiced as he looked forward to my coming. He saw it and was glad.” The people said, “You aren’t even fifty years old. How can you say you have seen Abraham?” Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I Am!”

#121 – I AM, I AM, I AM

I AM the Ark. In ME is a protection and a new start, with a new start comes a responsibility. As obedience produces favor, the uniqueness will bring some to celebration and others to offense, so walk in favor with humility.

I AM the Vine. In ME is the sustenance of life, everything you need comes from ME. What you will eat, what you will drink, where you will live are MY duty to provide and your responsibility to maintain. You are the fruit, I AM the root.

I AM the Shepherd. MY sheep know MY voice and follow it only. MY rod and MY staff are to protect you from the dangers from without and from within. A single swing of it, wounds the wolf and weans the sheep.

I AM the Cross. Through one death comes life, the ransom was paid. I hold the keys to death, hell and the grave. The crimson stain has been washed away and you have been resurrected with CHRIST. A restoration preordained from the beginning.

John 8:23-28
Jesus continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You belong to this world; I do not. That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I Am who I claim to be, you will die in your sins.” “Who are you?” they demanded. Jesus replied, “The one I have always claimed to be. I have much to say about you and much to condemn, but I won’t. For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful.” But they still didn’t understand that he was talking about his Father. So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand that I Am he. I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me. And the one who sent me is with me—he has not deserted me. For I always do what pleases him.”
